Fine Cuzco School Painting, 20th c.: "The Union of the Descendants of the Imperial Incas with the Houses of Loyola and Borja" Original, Cuzco, 1718. This extraordinary painting is a meticulous oil on canvas copy of one of the most iconic images of the Cuzco School of Painting, and shows the wedding of St. Ignatius Loyola's nephew, Don Martin Garcia de Loyala, Governor of Chile, to Dona Beatriz, heiress nusta and Princess of Peru, being te daughter of Don Diego Inca, the Last King of Peru. In an almost surrealist arrangement, their daughter, Dona Lorenza, is shown in the upper right background being married to Lord Don Juan de Borgia, son of the Sainted Franciscus de Borgia, an ambassador of the Catholic King Phillip II to Germany and Portugal. In the upper left hand corner are three of her ancestors: Diego Sairi Tupa, Felipe Tupa Amaru, and 'nusta' Cusi Huarcay. This copy of the original painting; one of the highlights of the marvelous Pedro de Osma Collection located in Baranco, outside of Lima, is distinctive for it's attention to detail and faithfulness to the original.
